september tide

anonymous asked:

YOU NEED TO MAKE A SONG COMIC WITH "NIGHTMARE". Maybe, not the whole song, but with the main part: "We're only kids who lost our way, but if we wait long enough, we'll be saved." - "It's only a nightmare, soon we'll be set free." IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WOULD LOOK AWESOME.

what should I read next?
soft cover vs hard cover — some of the books I need to read.

Yo! I finally finished sorting through the first group of thirteen creating the main month to month images. Now that we have them selected I’ll use this post to let everyone know what their month is!

@whydocowsfall - January 

@frostedpuffs - Feburary

@limeyfandump - March 

@lyosphe - April 

@dremagonstudio - May  

@beckyehhh - June 

@edendaphne - July 

@luciand29 - August 

@tides-miraculous - September 

@rixelvera - October 

@ferisae - November 

@lunecake - December 

@fansideblog - COVER

Please theme your pictures after the month you have been given, get creative with it! we are currently compiling a list of french holidays and events, but we encourage you to look into what sort of things would be happening in Paris at the time to perhaps give you inspiration for the mood or setting! You could simply have the friends enjoying a summer day, a warm sweatered walk through autumn leaves, pumpkin carving, whatever you want! Please include at least one character in your illustration, preferably two or more, and they must be in the main four. So long as you have one of the main four (Marinette, Alya, Nino, Adrien) you can add in additional characters of your choosing from the show, there just needs to be one main person in it just to appeal to as many people as possible though probably no one would have an issue with cute rose just chilling doing whatever. Thats just the rule we’re setting to influence final design just a touch. They can be wearing anything appropriate to their season (im sure no one needed reminding but keep it appropriate, this is light hearted seasonal/holiday/event fun times between friends) (wouldnt fight you on a misteltoe kiss though or something like that, just run it by me and i’ll tell you if its coolio, it probably will be). 

The recommended dimensions are straight up 8.5 x 11 inches, landscape which is rad. like a piece of paper. that would be 2550 x 3300 pixels. we encourage you to use as much of the space as possible, have fun with it! The hard deadline is the end of January, however if you complete your piece earlier than that send it in when its done, and if everyone finishes early we will release it at the time of the latest entry provided the formatting is complete! if not, then when THATS done. A lot of people have a break coming up with the holidays looming, so if things move quicker than expected im sure that’ll be why, haha. If you have any questions or would like help with suggestions please contact either @baneismydragon or me, @thelastpilot 

Thank you again for volunteering!! Let’s make this cool as hell!

When Algy found a comfortable perch on a warm rock, there was a calm wee pool at his feet and many exposed boulders around it, with patches of clear sand in between. But it seemed like no time at all before the tide swept in, surging relentlessly over the rocks and through every little nook and cranny, causing much excitement in the rock pools. In just a moment more Algy would have to fly up to a higher spot, but he remained at his perch for as long as he could, watching the spray fly up around him and the water churning beneath his toes…

September Tide - Daphne, Ellen and Gertrude

Daphne’s first play, September Tide, was originally titled Mother. Though heavily disguised, the play was about her close friend, Ellen Doubleday.

“She liked writing plays, she told Ellen, because it was so quick, and she indeed completed Mother in two weeks - ‘almost Noel Coward’ in speed. Nobody, she vowed, would ever guess that Stella, the mother of the title, was Ellen - it would be a secret between them…

'Every actress in London over the age of forty wants to play Stella.’ Fay Compton, Peggy Ashcroft, and Diana Wynyard were all in competition.” (Forster)

But in the end, the role went to Gertrude Lawrence. At first, Daphne hated Lawrence (a previous lover of her father’s), but soon warmed to her, and felt alive in her company. They became firm friends, and remained so until Gertrude - Gertie’s - death just a couple of years later.

[See Daphne du Maurier by Margaret Forster, pages 229-30 onwards)

It was a very important day for Scotland. This was expected to be the busiest day ever in Scottish electoral history, with an exceptionally high level of turnout, so Algy felt that he ought to be right there on the spot, making sure that everything went smoothly. The local polling station was open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., but as there were only about 190 registered voters in this remote area – and a third of those were voting by post – activity was not exactly frantic …

Fluffy birds had not been granted the right to vote in the Scottish Independence Referendum, so Algy could only provide moral support on this occasion. He flew the five miles or so to the polling station, and found himself a perch which was prominent, if not exactly comfortable. He then devoted all his energy to encouraging the local electorate with appropriate quotations from Shakespeare, such as this famous speech from Julius Caesar:

           There is a tide in the affairs of men.
           Which, taken at the flood, leads on to fortune;
           Omitted, all the voyage of their life
           Is bound in shallows and in miseries.
           On such a full sea are we now afloat,
           And we must take the current when it serves,
           Or lose our ventures.

Algy is thinking of all his friends in Scotland today, and sends you all extra special fluffy hugs from the West Highlands xoxo

[Algy is quoting a speech from Act 4 Scene 3 of the play Julius Caesar by William Shakespeare.]

It was a fine September afternoon, and although the south-westerly wind felt cold, the sun was bright and the sea was full of colour. Algy decided to fly over to a spot which he especially liked - a tiny beach on the headland, which was better suited to the scale of a fluffy bird than the big beaches across the bay - and he perched there on a rock, watching the ripples wash backwards and forwards across the pale sand as the tide came in. From time to time, a shiny silver head emerged from the water, not far from his perch, and a seal smiled at him for a few moments with the light flashing off its wet skin, before it dived again and continued to explore the underwater beds of seaweed.
